Free Speech Brand Of Scarlet Letters Rant
Why did I give up my home and put things in storage
That I believed that it was a sign from someone upstairs.
How on a poetic budget did hippie hair become patriotic
In the face of one of the greatest Liberal-ators of America?
I look like a $100 bill that makes cents in being this spectacle
Where no one wants to see a wrinkled weathered live Franklin
They want the greenback one that they treat Conservatively.
Oh how I seek solace in 24 hours of sleep
That it is better than living in this progressive reality
That America is being destroyed from within
That America has become a human god Blessed Demigod
That puts God’s individual compassion into lower letters.
Oh Moses, set me free from enslaved termination.
Can an Alabama have pity on a Ben Franklin doppelganger
To ask a Germany Goliath to set David free?
Unshackle him from a Terminated for Poetry noose
That keeps tightening in making life feel so worthless
That like America we must surrender to CEO rule
But a poet screams N.U.T.S.
N)ever U)nder T)yranny S)urrender
Give me Freedom and Democracy
Not like Egypt has now
But like a 1776 Revolution.
One cries in how one feels
To have German American Scarlet Letters
Feeling the “hollow cast” gloom in an
Invisible America’s prison
Swallowing one whole
In sheets of depressions.
